      I think I misplayed everything (but was lucky and won a flip).

      I know I should have raised preflop but can we justify sometimes a call?
      How to play the flop?

      Preflop: OK. I like 3betting vs tight opponents, more likely I am calling vs loose players.
      Flop: I don't like your Check/Raise, I'd prefer to Bet/Fold there. But also depends, have you seen him playing aggressive with flushdraws? If so then I would play Bet/Call and reevaluate turn. But it's kinda hard to play OOP, that's why I would prefer to Bet/Fold.

      Middle pairs have showdown value and therefore its ok to flat them preflop, as long as you are not waiting for a set or overpair only.
      Donking is one option, c/r is another,depends on the player. But when you got 3bet after c/r, you are behind 80+% of the time and should fold.

      Best regards,
